Golden Nuggets: 49ers Come Up Short Against Texans

A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the net. Sunday, August 19th, 2018 edition.

Saturday’s game against the Houston Texans was an ugly game. Well, it actually had the makings of quite a good game, that is, until the starters were pulled. After that, it became the kind of game that really makes you work out whether or not the 3rd stringers from either team would be able to beat a premier NCAA team, such as the Crimson Tide or Buckeyes. At the end of the day, however, these...

49ers linemen Mike Person and Joshua Garnett battling for starting job

HOUSTON — The competition to be the 49ers’ starting right guard continued Saturday and it appears Mike Person and Joshua Garnett are the frontrunners. For the second straight week, Person started at the position, but Garnett r...

Nick Mullens couldn’t do it twice

The 49ers starters showed a lot of great things. Nick Mullens unfortunately, could not save the day.

The San Francisco 49ers have concluded their second preseason game against the Houston Texans. The most important takeaway is that the starters fared much, much better than they did a week ago, the offense specifically. Beyond that, it was a good game to evaluate some prospects, but didn’t get to the wild proportions last wee would get us to. While the 49ers took the lead late in the 4th...

The 49ers offense was beautiful...except for those two penalties

The defense delayed things due to Texans receivers not catching. Offense would have been beautiful if not for Weston Richburg commiting back-to-back penalties.

The San Francisco second preseason game against the Houston Texans is currently going on and we’ve gotten our glimpses of the starters for both offense and defense. The offense got two series this week, which meant we got an extended look of Jimmy Garoppolo while defense will start pulling starters as plays go on. We’ll get to the...

49ers to sit 10 players vs. Texans

It’s about what you would expect.

We have some names that the San Francisco 49ers are not going to be playing in the team’s preseason game against the Houston Texans. The list includes RB Jerick McKinnon, RB Matt Breida, TE George Kittle, DL Arik Armstead, OT Gary Gilliam, DL Solomon Thomas, LB Malcolm Smith, DL Kentavius Street, CB K’Waun Williams, and WR Max McCaffrey.

Several of these names are consequences from Week 1’s preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. Thomas went down...

What would be a satisfactory 49ers offensive performance?

Last week, the first team offense had its moments, but it left something to be desired. What would you like to see out of Jimmy Garoppolo and company?

We all felt fortunate when football started back up last week when the San Francisco 49ers went up against the Dallas Cowboys. The defense broke at the worst time, allowing a Cowboys touchdown. Not to worry, the offense can come out and respond right?

Ehhhhhhhh.

While not horrendous, the lack of blocking for Jerick McKinnon and some Jimmy...

3 realistic trades the 49ers could make before start of the 2018 regular season

The end of the preseason is usually associated with roster cuts, but the San Francisco 49ers may be able to pull off some reasonable trades before Week 1 kicks off. Here are three.

Sortable roster by name, jersey number for preseason Week 2 vs. Texans

This should help come the fourth quarter.

The San Francisco 49ers are back in action Saturday evening, facing at the Houston Texans on the road at NRG Stadium. The game kicks off at 5 p.m. PT, so those of us on the east coast get a moderately better finish time. Anything’s better than a 10 p.m. ET kickoff!

The starters are expected to play a little more than they did against Dallas, but not too much more. I expect a quarter, maybe a little into the second quarter depending on the length of...

Reuben Foster covering Tavon Austin still hasn’t gotten old

Hopefully we get more Reuben Foster highlights against the Texans.

There’s a lot of things to be looking out for when the San Francsico 49ers go against the Houston Texans later today. One of the things at the top of my list is Reuben Foster. Not that I need any more confirmation he’s the man, but he makes preseason actually watchable.

In case you missed it, Foster had a nice coverage of Tavon Austin in Week 1’s contest against the Cowboys. Fooch had a nice write-up of it shortly...

So that one time, in Houston

Good things always happen in Houston

The San Francisco 49ers take on the Houston Texans in Game 2 of the preseason today, but there’s one little bit of history I thought I’d share. We all know the legend of how the greatest player of all time, Jerry Rice came to the 49ers. The trades, the scouting, and the legacy it left.

But it didn’t start at the draft, it started in Houston, Texas.

Bill Walsh—and the 49ers by extension—were in Houston getting ready to play the Houston Oilers...

Joe Staley gives an update from the 49ers-Texans joint practice

The 49ers concluded their joint practices with the Texans and we saw Jonathan Cooper and Joshua Garnett start to get more work in on the offensive line. The right guard position has been in flux for a while but veteran tackle Joe Staley is not concerned. He is comfortable with who they have on the line and is confident about their being a consistent unit once they get to the regular season.

Staley also explained that he doesn’t have a timeline in mind about when the position should be...

Golden Nuggets: It’s gameday for 49ers-Texans!

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Welcome to gameday on Saturday. Yeah, it seems kind of like something for the NCAA, but in preseason, the NFL puts these games on round the clock to get ratings.

The San Francisco 49ers face the Houston Texans in a second game where there’s going to not much to watch besides A: Jimmy Garoppolo and B: Reuben Foster.

And for me, I just need the 49ers to win to help my draft positioning. In my fantasy league, draft positioning...
